Unexpected Break...

Hi guys,
Hope you haven't thought that i've forgotten about you. I'm currently writing to you from my bed... in the hospital! Apparently I have some sort of nasty infection (i'll spare you the details) but i've been here since yesterday morning and won't be getting out til at LEAST tomorrow.

It's been way more needle pricks and antibiotics than I'd ever wish on anybody, so fingers crossed that i'm out of here soon.
Once i'm back up and running, i'll definitely be posting my giveaway! So stay tuned!

Playing Catch Up

Well its now 9pm on THURSDAY, and i haven't had a minute to myself since Monday!
Work is driving me bananas (b-an-an-as)! 
But the weekend is almost here, so just gotta get thru one more day.

With that said, it's time for a little It's OK Thursdays, 
you know my favorite link up because it gives me the opportunity to 
put my complaints in to the complaint dept (you guys) for the week. 

Here we go!

It's OK...

to not have time for blogging, twitter, instagram or pinterest (gasp!) this week. but to still check facebook religiously.
getting high off fb.

to not have any clue what to get my brother for his birthday (TOMORROW! EEK!) - 
so far i got him a Giants T-shirt, but what else... maybe cologne?
hit me up if you have any ideas for me.

to have spent over $500 on car maintenance, more specifically new tires. sometimes you need to invest the big bucks to ensure safety.

to love getting free make up from my cousin!
this is the Too Faced "natural at night"
one word: GORGEOUS 

to sometimes miss being single, living alone and doing my own thing.

to miss the days when work was fun!
this was us 3 years ago at Happy Hour on the Beach
The big dawgs let us out early and we hopped on over 
to Tiki Bar at the Jersey Shore.
Those were the days...

to have had diseased male anatomy parts 
printed out enlarged
ya know what, i'm not even going to go there.
it legit IS for work purposes. 
but its just SO not ok
i can't even pretend for humor's sake.
{insert giggles like a 10 year old}

to sometimes love this face more than my husbands
to really really really love this face.
hi blog peeps!

to have taken forever to get my giveaway ready for the blog
but its ready and i'll be posting it tomorrow!
Trust me, you'll want to come back and checka-check it out.

the one where i blogged at night.

Here we go with trying to blog at night.
I almost always blog during the day, but i find myself sitting here tonight with nothing to do, so why not.

Weekend recap:
Friday - worked longer than i should have or wanted to. hit up HH at a co-workers newly finished patio/pool. drank some yummy sangria. ate her to die for homemade hummus. and got bitten by mosquitos. 37 of them to be exact. i kid you not. please god don't let me get west nile. i feel like i'm 6 years old again with the chicken pox. my boss even asked me if i was feeling ok, because i had "splotches on my neck". bug bites. not hickies. get your minds out of the gutter. :P
Saturday - disappointed in my breakfast at the diner. shoulda got the eggs benedict. then grocery shopping. then played DD to my brother and husband. went to pick up drunk and drunker and part of the turnpike was closed. ummmm. hello.... state of NJ. you can't just CLOSE the mother - bleeping turnpike! i ended up in hoboken before i could turn around. there was mucho cussing as you can imagine. so happy early birthday bro. from your taxi cab sister.
Sunday - dr appt (at the butt crack of dawn - don't even ask). then BBQ at a friends house. overcast skies led to no swimming. thank god cuz i'm a fatty. her baby was cute but crankypants. ate some burgers. drank some beer. had some great conversation. glad to have a new friend in the area to hang out with.

oh yeah, and i forgot the most important part from Friday... the Loft sweater that i tried to stalk and blogged about last week is NOWHERE to be found! they didn't even know what sweater i was talking about when i went in and described it. i know, you're sad too. i can't even find the original blog i pulled it off of. and i scoured the Loft website for at least an hour searching for it, and its gone. Like totally david blained itself into thin air. fail. fail. fail. i guess that sweater and i were not meant to live in perfect harmony with one another.

and obviously this is why i don't blog at night. because i say stupid shit like "live in perfect harmony with one another". who says that???

oh, and i have no pics in this post. a) because i didn't take any pics over the weekend. and b) because i'm too lazy to try to do anything remotely creative and insert pictures right now. deal with it. it's almost 11pm, i'm starting to fizzle.

and last but not least, i haven't forgotten about the giveaway i wanted to do. i promise i'll get my act together this week and put something fun together. (yeah just like i've been promising to fold the clothes that have been sitting in the dryer for a week now and promising to paint my nails from 3 weeks ago). but i will try to get around to it. because i heart you guys.

that is all.

Confessional Friday

G'day Mates!
I don't know about you kids, but I'm UBER psyched it's Friday!
The fact that I had a cute Aussie barista (baristo-o?) giving me my favorite berry hibiscus refresher this morning may have contributed to my excitement regarding the end of the week. Ladies, he was taken (saw a wedding ring on his finger), but had an accent to.die.for.

OK, getting back to reality...
Linking up today with Leslie over at A Blond Ambition for

I confess.... that I have a shit ton of work to do today (since we get out early) and instead, i'm sitting here on le blog.

I confess... that i'm running walking driving my butt right over to Ann Taylor LOFT after work to buy this sweater.

I confess... 90% of my co-workers annoy the shit out of me on a daily basis. Is this normal or do I just need a vacation?

I confess... with that said, lately my husband has been annoying as well. Though, that's not to say I don't annoy him right back!

I confess... I spent $14 on FRO YO last night. That is just ridiculous. It tasted amazeballs though, so i have no regrets. I keep telling myself that its healthier than regular ice cream. Right?

I confess... that I really want to get back into running, but i'm just really really really really really really LAZY. Sitting on the couch watching Big Ang is just SO much more entertaining. Any tips on motivating me?

I confess... that I'm tooting my own horn in the BEST wife/sister department. My brother and Gary have a football game tomorrow night. And guess who isn't actually going to the game, but going to be the DD... dropping them off and picking their wastey pants arses up. I deserve a cookie medal, new handbag! Something, right??? Especially having to deal with those two drunk idiots.

And lastly, I confess... that i'm loving seeing this little blog grow. I love all your comments and appreciate you all! With that said, I'm thinking of a fun little giveaway as a way to celebrate the big 5-0. Nothing big... I'll think up some ideas this weekend.

OK back to work! Have a great weekend, enjoy every second of it!

mekka-lekka hi mekka hiney ho

Good morning party peeps.
I was all set to write my post this morning,
and then FB sucked me in with a few ridiculous statuses
and all my "its ok's" just flew out of my head.
But, for you lovely readers, i'll try my best to remember.

Link up HERE or HERE

It's OK!

(like, seriously, it is.)

... that i totally thought today was Wednesday and was going to start my post with "Happy Hump Day" -- thank god for iPhone time and date screen!

... that i almost crashed my car yesterday morning driving to work because there was a spider on the INSIDE of my windshield. Consequently, i pulled over TWICE before finally squashing that sucker. (And yes, i screamed like a bitch. You would have too. You know you would have.)

... that i ate a total of 5 brownies in one day. #thisiswhyimfat

... that i got a great "performance review" at work, but nothing in my pocket to show for it. in reality this is NOT ok, but i'm trying to convince myself that doing my job exceptionally well is rewarding in itself.

... that this light has been on in my car for 3 days and i still haven't checked it out. i may or may not have said the words "mekka-lekka hi mekka hiney ho" when i saw it, because it looks like a lil butt!

... that my shirt had not 1, but TWO buttons fall off it already today. Sweet. Now i look like a poor person that can't afford clothing. Maybe they'll feel bad for me and give me the above mentioned raise? Tactics people, tactics. Oh shit, i just looked down, its now THREE buttons. You can't tell from the photo. Thank God i had the decency to wear a tank top underneath or my milkshake would bring all the boys to the yard, fo' sho!

Tell me what's OK with YOU today!

Two Posts in ONE Day?!

I'm getting all cray cray with ya's today!
I NEVER get in two posts, but i had a lot of fun with this link up last week, so i'm doin in and doin it and doin it AGAIN!
yes. major cheeseball. 
i have no excuses like lack of sleep. i slept for a whopping 12 hours last night, 
due to the arrival of AF and her crampy overtures.
(the food coma from dinner at the olive garden may also have contributed).

But, i digress.

Currently turning me on

Hair Product
buy it here

Can I tell you how much i heart this stuff? all you need is a little pump, distribute thru either damp or dry hair for a pretty shiny finish. Tames my fly-aways and smells HEAVENLY.
this stuff is legit ladies. It even doubles as a body oil.
Cant beat that with a bat!

Lip Balm

This is an oldie but goodie.
I put on my SoftLips everyday when i finish doing my make up.
I either leave it on alone or layer it under a gloss.
I love the smell, but most of all the consistency is awesome.
it just effortlessly glides on, not too oily, not too dry.

Nail Polish
Lately, there is nothing more that i love than Zoya nail polish.
Granted, i haven't painted my nails in a few weeks (#lazybum)
but, i definitely want to get my hands on these cool new colors.

What's turning you on today?

The Bucket List: August

Good Morning Ladies!
I'm linking up today with Page Twenty-two for

What? You didn't know I was in this movie? Gosh, what's wrong with you people... pay attention!
And yes, Morgan Freeman may have been checking out my rack. Jack already checked it out, hence the dirty smile he's got! i kid, i kid!

"A "bucket list" is a list of things you want to do or accomplish in the near future......"
I tried to add some that I'll be able to cross off my list, but there are a few more that are a little more long-term. But here we go!

Let's see how many I can cross off by the end of the year! Til then, what's on YOUR bucket list?

Just call me Tiger.

Link up HERE

Dear Mother Nature,
I don't mind you sending us thunder storms, honest. However, i'm supposed to play golf today for the first time in forever. Rain + Golf =  Soggy Asian getting MORE soaked because she's off hunting in the woods for her damn ball. No bueno. Please send some sun our way at say, 3pm. You can send it to Somerset, NJ.
Your wanna-be Tiger Woods-skilled-but-in-a-golf-only-related-way friend,
Tiger Jr. -- shay

Dear 4:30am,
i hate you. whoever has to wake up at this ungodly hour, i don't know how you do it. i have been waking up all week to drop G off at the bus stop and it is not fun. thank god i will not have to see you again until monday. til then, you can go suck it.
 your sleep deprieved friend,

Dear Hubby,
well you heard those 2 words yesterday. You're Right. Savor them. Enjoy them, as they will rarely come out of my mouth. But i do concede that the full fat, normal polish kielbasa does taste 110x better than the low-fat, imitation turkey kielbasa i've been buying and trying to pass off to you. Also, it was wonderful having you make dinner last night. Can we get some more of that around here? Pretty please with a cherry on top?
Your grateful (and getting fat) wife,
shay aka boo boo bear

Dear Pandora,
do you love me as much as i love you lately? thank you for helping me change up my music moods daily. and for letting me skip the songs i hate. and ignore G when he tells me that because i was listening to the Four Seasons, that i have the the musical taste of a 50 year old. He's closer to 50 than I am, so he should like my Jersey Boys channel.
your off-key but not caring listener,

Dear Followers,
you make my heart happy. when i first started this blog, it was purely for myself to vent my frustrations and to record my happy memories. But little bloggy is slowly growing. Thanks for reading and following along. And i hope to someday meet some of your pretty faces in person!
your happy writer,

It's A-O-freaking K...

Good Morning Peepers!
I started thinking about what i'd be posting today last night so here goes!

Linking up for It's OK Thursdays!
Link up HERE or HERE

It's A-O-freaking K...

... that i've had an uncrustables for breakfast everyday this week. Pre-made PB&J - what more can you ask for? thank you smuckers for saving me some precious time in the mornings and making such a delightful delicious sandwich.

... that i have to fall asleep with a pillow over my head every.damn.night. the tv in our bedroom is quite large and bright and loud. But these are the things you compromise over when you're married. He puts the toilet seat down, i sleep with the pillow on my head. Having my ass never have to touch toilet water, i think this is a fair trade.

... that i work on informational material pertaining to some really nasty, TMI medical issues. let's just say i have to call my printer today to let them know i'm sending them a poster with some very interesting deformed male anatomy on it. then again, this is what pays the bills people... so crooked weiners it is! #wishiwasjoking

PS. PSA - if your junk is going to be in photos, please do us all a favor and manscape.

... that i have been ignoring the weird noises my car is starting to make. ok, this is REALLY not ok. but i legit just dropped 170 bones on car maintenance last month and i refuse to do it again so soon. is this a good idea? probably not... but for now, what noise? i don't hear a noise... 

... with that said, i'm ordering a DIY cabin air filter. Nissan wants $100 to install this. my plan is a $15 filter, DIY, YouTube videos, and putting the husband to work! "this will be easy" #famouslastwords

... that i almost "poked my eye out" the other morning after my eye connected with a shelf (i swear that shelf came out of NOWHERE) when i was bending over to get my shoes. not only did i almost knock myself unconscious inside my walk-in closet, but my eye swelled and was teeny tiny for the rest of the day making it even more slanty than usual. #asiangirlproblems

Anyway, that's all i got for today.
Uno mas dia til the weekend!

Turn me On Tuesday...

A quick link up with Dreaming of Dimples to let you know what's "turning me on" today! hehehe.
(don't get any naughty ideas!)

My girl Ingrid Michaelson performing Parchute. 
We went to her concert last Friday and it was awesome!

 This berry hibiscus refresher definitely hit the spot on Sunday!
Can't wait to go back for another!

Found these books on Goodreads, from my girl Miss Katy and I just can't get enough of them.
They are so much fun and I can't wait for the next book to come out!

This Stella&Dot bracelet is perfect for summer... 
i definitely think it needs to make an appearance on my wrist!
The Bargain Blonde is a Stella & Dot consultant so i might have to order soon!

That about sums it up for the week.
I know I've still been MIA - lots of work, little play.

Though, i'm currently trying to plan a small overnight getaway
for our 1st wedding anniversary.
We got a promo free night for Revel in AC and i've been dying to check it out.
So that might be on the agenda for next month.

Til then, we have some Jets football coming up!
Hi Tim Tebow.  Call me maybe?

What turns YOU on?!
